that species has a white stipe which is somewhat darker below, but not entirely blue as seen here. compare with the image from the original description:

rather than change the author of the genus Stilbum to Aeruginosum, try proposing the name Stilbum aeruginosum and forcing its creation as a new taxon.

180 year old rediscovery?

I got an answer from the specialist of anamorphic species.

“Dear Jonathan,

Accidentally, I think I might have found something in my notes. There was a fungus called Stilbum aeruginosum or Graphium aeruginosum described by a Frenchman named Desmazieres in 1830. I looked at the type specimen about 30 years ago, but could not find a complete fungus on it. But the name ‘aeruginosum’ is consistent with the colour of the specimen from Mexico, and the spores I saw were more or less globose and 4-5 × 3-4 um.

So perhaps Alan Rockefeller has rediscovered a fungus that has not been seen for 180 years. So, if someone can find it again, and get a specimen to me, perhaps there will be some interesting science that can be done.

Perhaps you can post these notes on the Mushroom Observer site for me.

Thanks," (Keith, seifert).

An possible interesting find indeed!

I see why you were tempted by Dendrostilbella, Jonathon, what with its semi-gelatinous and colorful anamorphs. Unfortunately, all the known species have spores that are ellipsoid or cylindrical. Otherwise, lots of other details in common. Below taken from: http://www.cbs.knaw.nl/publications/1027/fulltext/

Dendrostilbella Höhnel – Öst. bot. Z. 55: 22. 1905. Conidiomata synnematous, determinate, semigelatinous, not changing colour in KOH or lactic acid. Hyphae of stipe interwoven at base, parallel through most of length of stipe, without clamps, marginal hyphae and ornamenting cells absent. Conidiophore branching monoverticillate, irregularly biverticillate or rarely 2-level verticillate, acropleurogenous phialides sometimes present. Conidiogenous cells phialidic, cylindrical to subulate. Conidial mass mucoid, terminal. Conidia aseptate, oblong-ellipsoidal to cylindrical, not exceeding 5 × 2 µm.

I think we’re getting closer. Why not just call it a “hyphomycete” for now, since we can’t seem to quite get it to a genus or species at this point? I know that this term is no longer in use, but ascomycete anamorph seems too general for what we have here.

we have no clue what it is i guess!

Can i send those picture and some data (conidia shape and size) to an anamorphic fungi specialist?

is it an asco or a basidio?
